TPM 2.0 depends somewhat on the type of self test - there are several
options.  They will in some sense block other commands that use
the angorithm.

The TPM is permitted to do an extend before the hash algorithm is
tested (just not return a result) but I don't think it's required.


- self test
- extend

may permit the extend to proceed while the self test is
happening, but it may not.
